International Pooper Scooper Week

International Pooper Scooper Week   April 1-7  

The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists (aPaws) was founded in February 2002 by a group of pooper scoopers who believe every dog should have it's day.  In recognition of a growing problem in our communities, environment, and water tables, aPaws has established a special week of educating pet owners on the importance of cleaning up after their dogs.  Dog waste is no joke!  If you can’t pick up the dog waste yourself then please hire an aPaws Professional Pooper Scooper!  For information about aPaws, the Find-A-Scooper Directory, and other health information, please visit or email
